This is a restaurant associated with the historic house also called Castle in the Clouds. But, the restaurant is in the old carriage house part way up the mountain toward the actual historic house. The restaurant serves a rather nice lunch, which I am prepared to review for you.

Had lunch at the Carriage House and the food and service was great. Not your standard fair that you normally expect at an attraction.

We've been to the Castle many times but never had lunch there until today even though we live about 2 miles away. It was a beautiful summer day during the peak of tourist season and so there was about a 25 minute wait. We were seated on the patio which was covered by a large tent presumably in preparation for...

The restaurant is open for lunch most days, but only a few evenings when there is live music. So it's important to make dinner reservations in advance when music is scheduled to sit out on the patio, because there are only a small number of tables, and they tend to sell out fast. The menu is small, and the same... More

When we arrived it was lunch time and there was a wait. After we finished our tour of the castle, we headed in for apps and drinks. No wait by then which was around 2:30. Seated outside on the terrace, though there is indoor seating. Fried onion rings and pork potstickers were tasty. The Tom Plant cocktail was quite good.... More

The view is great! Food is all right. Service is good. Wait is about 30 minutes. So call ahead. Nice breeze during lunch! Need to wear sunglasses if you are not under the shade.

The food was OK....it really wasnt anything special but then again I only got a chicken salad. The drinks were delicious. They had a good list and I had St Germain and... More

We've always enjoyed the breathtaking views at the Castle, but yesterday we were very disappointed in the food and wine selection. There were four of us and no one was impressed with their meals. I ordered a Caesar Salad with the addition of steak. The salad had one small steak tip, about three bites, for a hefty additional cost. I'd... More

We choose to eat on the terrace, we lucked out and only had a 15 minute wait but guests after us had a wait of 30-45 minutes. Service was good but it took over 30 minutes to get our food. We enjoyed our lunch before going to see the castle.
